I am having the interface definitions in c++ files and I would like to use that interfaces in Matlab simulink. So, please suggest whether better to use coder.ceval or legacy code tool ? and how the both are different from each other.
TheLegacy Code Toolis generally used for integrating the C or C++ function into Simulink. The functions are generally S-functions which need to beinsertedas a Simulink Block in the model. Whereas usingcoder.cevaland other equivalent commands we can call external C/C++ functions into MATLAB environment. For this Code Generation is used while calling the C/C++ function. It is suggested to use Legacy Code Tool while working with Simulink Models and if working on Building interface between C/C++ code to MATLAB,coder.cevalcan be used.
